Source Bertha Remaster of the Multi-Track Master Reel Source (SHN ID 338020
Transferred by Jay Ashley



Digitally Remastered using the Bertha Digital Audio Workstation by Completed April 14, 2006.

This was a terrible transfer with more than 100 digi-snits throughout the show. More than 16 hours was spent fixing most of them. There are a few small ones that remain. A couple of methods were used in fixing the digi-snits, including manually editing individual samples.

Bobby says "See you later, bye bye" at the end of One More Saturday Night. Frequency and spectral analysis shows the signature to be the same as the rest of the show. Though it may appear out of order, it is believed this is due to the show being partially broadcast on French TV and this may have been the end of the TV part of the show.

Between song tuning and banter was removed by someone and is not part of the original release. There appears to be tape machine noise between each song on the original. These small bips of noise were removed.

This is A fantastic show with absolutely wonderful sound.

I'd definitely check this one out live. (and then stick around for all of the Europe tour!) :-)

The sound/music quality on this is so good I feel like I’m listening to the much overdubbed E-’72 album. Love this period of the band and agree that this show is a high water mark for the year. Enjoy

An outstanding performance, including some great playing by Weir, two sets of which are immortalized in an excellent video from a European television broadcast. It features superb sound quality and a gorgeous soaring Dark Star with a beautiful segue into Sugar Magnolia. Although the songs from the first two sets don't get stretched out much, perhaps due to the television broadcast, everything is particularly well played, particularly the China/Rider, an excellent Big Railroad Blues (the performance where the band wears the Bozo masks for this number), and a classic styled performance of Casey Jones.

While this 30+ minute Dark Star is not quite as brilliant as some of the monumental efforts that follow, it is still a stunning effort, largely due to some great work by Keith. The pre-verse intro is simply beautiful. Right from the opening notes there is some beautiful interplay between Jerry and Keith, though it eventually breaks down. After several attempts, Jerry re-establishes the theme and pulls it back together. Immediately after the verse there is a lilting duet between Jerry and Billy, though this too is unsustained. Following some rumbling from Phil, this one briefly gets quiet, and then the magic starts. At about 24:00, Weir steers the band into a gorgeous and jazzy jam similar to WRS. Its amazingly sublime, the entire ensemble locking in on the theme for several minutes before a thrilling segue into Sugar Magnolia.

An extraordinary performance of Caution follows, the beginning of which is particularly jazzy! This is a gem of a show! (97 pts)

Exellent both in performance and sound quality. Another beautiful remaster by Mr. Ashley.

First off a huge thanks goes out to Jay who helped to make this show sound all shiny and new. I've edited sound before and it's a pain in the ass.

The music contained within is pretty phenomenal. Jerrys guitar sounds great! A very unique "He's Gone", one of my favorites.

The transition from Dark Star into Sugar Mag is absolutely beautiful.

Good show in a foreign land. Enjoy the Dead!

But none of them compare. A great show with great sound all the way through with the highs and lows lovingly and masterfully boosted and/or cleaned-up due to the Bertha process.

Perhaps this is one of their most evocative Dark Stars -- certainly one of their finest and easily one of my favorites.
